Passport Silver and Data Settings

What iPhone settings do I need to have in order to minimize data usage while traveling? Data Roaming off? Cellular Data on or Off?
Any special setting to be able to make/receive calls within the countries I am traveling in? What about SMS/mms?

With an iPhone, you just need to have data roaming off to prevent data use. My rule of thumb is to only turn data roaming on when I want to use data, then turn off when done. There are no other required settings but you do want to leave cellular data on. If you turn that off, you won't be able to send or receive MMS messages.
